Zoup! Opening Second Massachusetts Location

Fresh soup lovers in Massachusetts got their first taste of the high-quality, healthy soup recipes made by Zoup! nearly two years ago at its location in the Sherwood Plaza on Route 9 in Natick.

Next month, the Worcester area will get a Zoup! all its own as the fast-casual, fresh soup concept opens its second location in Massachusetts. The new restaurant will be located at 375 Main Street in Worcester.

“We’re thrilled to bring Zoup!’s award-winning recipes to the city of Worcester,” says franchisees Mark and Lori Fox. “We are very excited to open another restaurant to share our awesome soups in downtown Worcester, New England’s second largest city.”

Zoup! features hundreds of award-winning soup recipes with 12 rotating daily varieties, including low-fat, low-calorie, vegetarian, dairy-free, and gluten-free options, all served with a hunk of freshly baked bread. Customer favorites include Chicken Potpie, Lobster Bisque, and Vegetable Bounty. The menu also features made-to-order salads and sandwiches, and all menu items are available in convenient catering sizes for groups of 10 or more.

To help customers select from the daily soups, sampling is encouraged. And, for those looking to save time, a daily soup menu and online ordering are available. Customers receive an offer to “buy a bowl, get one free” when they join Zoup!’s special promotions email list online.

“We created Zoup! after discovering that really good soup is hard to find,” says Eric Ersher, Zoup!’s founder and CEO. “Also, in talking to people, it became clear that there’s something special about soup and the way it elicits thoughts of family, well-being and comfort for many people. We strive to offer authentic, hand-crafted soups that are as good—and as ‘feel-good’—as the homemade soups our mothers and grandmothers used to make.”

Zoup! currently owns and franchises 99 restaurants in 19 states/provinces throughout the United States and Canada.
